The most recent monograph of Reverend Thomas Guarino, professor of systematic theology at Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology (ICSST), has received the 2014 Paradosis Center Book Prize.
The award-winning monograph is titled Vincent of Lerins and the Development of Christian Doctrine (Grand Rapids: Baker Academic, 2013 ). The Paradosis Center awards the prize annually "in recognition of the publication of the book marking the most significant theological contribution to Catholic, Orthodox and/or evangelical dialogue in any given year, whether in the area of biblical, historical or dogmatic theology."
"Father Guarino has long been committed to authentic ecumenical dialogue, and this recognition of his work and acumen on the part of his colleagues is a well-deserved distinction," said Monsignor Joseph Reilly, ICSST rector/dean.
Father Guarino earned his B.A. at Seton Hall University, his S.T.B. from Rome’s Gregorian University and his S.T.L. and S.T.D. from the Catholic University of America. His previous publications include "Revelation and Truth," "Foundations of Systematic Theology," and "Vattimo and Theology" and scores of articles and reviews in theological and philosophical journals.
